"Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.
I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in the darkness, the astonishing light of your own being."
"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want."
"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished."
"Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly."
"Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before."
- Mae West
"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."
"It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."

“We women, when we’re searching for a meaning to our lives or for the path of knowledge, always identify with one of four classic archetypes.
“The Virgin (and I’m not speaking here of a sexual virgin) is the one whose search springs from her complete independence, and everything she learns is the fruit of her ability to face challenges alone.
“The Martyr finds her way to self-knowledge through pain, suffering, and surrender.
“The Saint finds her true reason for living in unconditional love and in her ability to give without asking anything in return.
“Finally, the Witch justifies her existence by going in search of complete and limitless pleasure.”
- Paulo Coelho in Brida
